Hi... new member. 08 tC, about 75K miles. Always get oil changes at the dealer (Cobb County Toyota in Kennesaw, GA) and when I went there for an oil change last week they told me if they took the drain plug out they wouldn't be able to get it back in and it would cost $375 to fix.
I asked a friend about it and he said they probably want to replace the oil pan and gasket -- but they didn't tell me what parts they needed to replace (I can ask again later). But he also said if the oil drain plug is bad and the dealer is the only ones who have changed the oil, they are ones who messed it up by tightening the bolt too much.
I searched and couldn't find any other threads with people reporting the same problem. Has anyone else had this issue? Or is the dealer trying to rip me off?
My friend took a picture of the oil pan and plug and it looks fine, no evidence of damage or leaking.
